Title: Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together
Posted: October 02, 2011 (05:02 PM)
I just picked up the PSP remake of this game a few days ago and holy shit, is it awesome. The original Final Fantasy Tactics was one of my favourite games, but TO definitely has it trumped so far.

Has anyone else played this?

I just used this as an excuse to post Korean girls.

I forget if I played Let Us Cling Together, but I played The Knight of Lodis years ago when I had a GBA and couldn't believe how good it was. Really underrated series.

Knight of Lodis was badass. I've been tempted to replay that. The lich was one of my favorite classes ever.

True bought it and voiced his opinion here that the game is trash. He couldn't wait to sell it. Unfortunately for him, I had already bought a copy from Amazon.com based on the sterling recommendation Jeremy Parish gave it over at 1up. Apparently, the PSP remake is one of the absolute finest SRPGs of all time. Most people seem to agree. I'm not sure why True found it so unbearably awful, but I know he felt pretty strongly about it. I myself am looking forward to playing it... someday. I really liked Ogre Battle and I've wanted to play the follow-up for years but never got around to it. Now that I at least own it, I'm getting closer.

I like the story but I find the gameplay ridiculous. So slow to level anyone up, can't seem to give them any edge at all in battle. So most battles I just seem to scrape through with one character left alive who is poisoned and almost dead and keeps missing his attack.

Phew. Thanks, Jason. I feel less apprehensive about picking to LUCT. I didn't bother to read any opinions on it aside from True's, mainly because there are a few other titles I'm more interested in. This one has definitely taken some steps up, though.

From what little bit of the game I've had time to play (only about 3-4 hours into it), it seems to be that many of the storyline battles are of the "Kill Target X" variety, rather than the "kill all enemies" type. The former seems to have an overabundance of foes to take on, to the point that killing all enemies and prolonging the battle does more to harm you than it does to help you. If those are the kinds of battles you were struggling on, Jerec, I'd suggest taking your forces to the target and zerging it down as quickly as possible to make the victory easier.

Is this the one that was on the Super Famicom, but not ported to the SNES (as opposed to the real-time strategy Ogre Battle we got in America that I finally gave up on trying to play through...at least for now) and then got released on the PS1?

That's the one! And how could you not get through Ogre Battle: Marh of the Black Queen? I played through it three or four times and loved it!

I'd probably have to replay Ogre Battle on SNES, but I wasn't all that thrilled by it. Mainly, the reputation system bugged me.

I don't know. I tried March of the Black Queen twice. The alignment system was part of it. Good in theory (smash everything with a tiny few elite groups and be locked out of characters, good endings), but stuff like that causes me to get overly micro-managing and when I do that, I have a habit of sucking the fun out of a game (like I did when I bought Disgaea and decided I had to build characters of every class, human and monster...and spent more time in the item world than anywhere else).

I guess if I decided to not care about things like that, I could try again, but that'd be far in the future. Too many more modern games, too few years to play them all...so when I go retro, more often it'll be quickie games or RPG types I haven't tried yet that I want to.
